    Japan day:**
    We learnt about traditional sports in Japan 🇯🇵 such as sumo wrestling 🤼‍♂️ 🤼‍♂️ .And we learnt about kimonos that Japanese ppl wear.And ppl in Japan only wear kimonos in special occasions that is because they have spacial and cute pattern son it and anyways it is not just for boys but it is for females as well and kiddies can wear it too.👧🏼…Japanese have 3main languages and no more than 3 and the main big language is kanji …Sumo wrestling is way fun but unfun (not fun) to lose.
    I love sumo wrestling only because you have 6 rounds and in those 6rounds you can show you still have resilience in yourself.

    While China may be known for its tea consumption, the Japanese are more into coffee. They are responsible for the importing and consuming of about 85% of Jamaica’s coffee production.The literacy rate (people who can read and write) of Japan is one of the highest in the world, at almost 100%. Many think that Japan’s rigorous education system is the reason behind it.
